I'm very pleased with my 8$ a piece shubunkin goldfish from lfs. They seem very happy in a 37 gal with 7 white cloud minnows and ramshorn snails. No eaten snails or minnows

I'm normally not that into goldfish to be honest but I absolutely LOVE those guys!
Could we see a picture of the whole tank to see the setup?
Really nice fish man!

I'm use to south American cichlids. These guys have more of a bold goofy temperament vs the twitchy agrivated temperament of the cichlids I'm use to

Nice!
Will they grow any bigger? If so I don't know if that tank is big enough.
Seems a bit small now as it is but should suffice for now

Shubunkins can reach 12 inches in length (not including tail) and are the same as comet or common goldfish (with a single tail), but different colour.

They won't reach full size in that tank and probably won't get much bigger than they are :)
